Ways to Contribute

There are many diverse ways to help the YDN. In the world of child care, funds for teacher salaries and compensation, facility maintenance, supplies and equipment are inadequate and always needed. YDN has an Early Learning Endowment Fund dedicated to program quality improvements and for child care scholarships. Donations of specific classroom materials and toys are also welcome. Some people choose to contribute their time and talents, through the YDN Board of Directors, Ad-Hoc Committees, fundraisers, sharing of special interests, activities with the children, etc.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

YDN is committed to providing a high quality safe, secure, and nurturing environment that is vital for the healthy development of every young child. The needs and interests of each child are the basis for classroom learning experiences, whether a child is six weeks old or four years of age.

YDN strongly believes that each child is unique and possesses unlimited potential. Thus we strive to create wonderful learning environments that encourage children “to be all they can be.” Through play in multi-cultural classrooms with well-trained educators, children explore their world at their own pace, discover how to cooperate and problem solve, try out new ideas, develop language, math and motor skills, build confidence to attempt new and different activities. This stimulating environment is designed to develop the total child—emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually.

YDN is also committed to building a strong family and center partnership in order to provide the highest quality of care and early education for all our young children. Families are encouraged to become involved at the YDN on many different levels.
